Riley Child Center Featured in Gardening Book

We have a happy announcement to share!  Purdue University Calumet’s Charlotte R. Riley Child Center is featured in  the second edition  of Hollyhocks and HoneybeesGardening with Young Children.  One of the book’s authors, Marla Olthof, worked with  Riley center staff to collect and document children’s gardening activities and experiences last spring and summer.  The children were involved in journaling their planting  vegetables and harvesting experiences. Children even painted and pressed flowers!  We are looking forward to gardening again this spring and summer.
